Deep Thoughts

Things I wish went through my head at aerobics:
  • I don't mind taking a front step, someone will follow my steps and it will help them!
  • I'm going to work extra hard and see if I can get in some extra steps.
  • I am going to try and quickly advance through the levels, I want to reach level 6 ASAP.
  • I am checking in the mirrors to make sure my form is correct.
  • 1, 2, 3, tap.....
  • I'm tough, I'm strong, I CAN do this!
  • I love to exercise!
  • Squats make my legs strong.
  • Correct form, abs in...controlled movements...FOCUSED!
  • Sweat running down my face is awesome! It means the workout is effective.
  • Alex commented to me-I love it when she addresses me during the workout.

Things that actually go through my head at aerobics:

  • CRAP! All the back row steps are taken, I have got to get here earlier.
  • How long can I possibly wait to invest in a form fitting sports bra/tee shirt/tank top and lycra pants? Forever. It's fun being the eccentric loose t-shirt girl.
  • I'm the fattest person wait, she is, check the mirrors, hmmm, I'm not sure it could be me but I think it might be her.
  • HEY! I'm fat in the side mirror, but I look great in the front mirror, skinny mirrors at aerobics? Cruel games, man!
  • I hate exercising...crap, I can't believe it's only been 15 minutes!
  • OH NO, I hate lunges!
  • I wonder how long it will be before my knees stop protesting?
  • 1,2,3...oh oops...1,2,1,2,...oh oops, what? I was almost with you and now you've changed it!
  • Why isn't the rest of the world SICK TO DEATH of Mustang Sally?
  • How am I feeling? I have sweat dripping down my back...all the way. I feel gross and sweaty and tired, only 40 more minutes and we're done!
  • Sweat in my eyes....ouch...get a drink, wipe my face...
  • OH NO!! I'm behind the ENERGIZER BUNNY again!
  • Please don't talk to me Alex, it takes me 8 steps to get back on track.
  • This IS worth it...THIS is WORTH it?...THIS IS WORTH IT...this IS worth it!
  • Seriously...please no more squats...IYEEE, more squats...this IS worth it...
  • Ah, time for the mats...I love you blue mats!!

Just keepin' it real, ya'll.

Hilarious! I don't think lunges ever get easy.

Thoughts going through my head while running?
-Will this ever get easier?
-HOW much farther do I have to go?
-I wish I had a donut.
